For the past three decades A. A. Long has been at the forefront of research in Hellenistic philosophy. In this book he assembles a dozen articles on Stoicism previously published in journals and conference proceedings. The collection is biased in favour of Professor Long's more recent studies of Stoicism and is focused on three themes: the Stoics' interpretation of their intellectual tradition, their ethics and their psychology. The contents of the book reflect the peculiarly holistic and systematic features of Stoicism. The papers are printed here in their original form for the most part, but the author has made some minor corrections and stylistic or bibliographical changes. He has also added a postscript to three papers whose topics have been the subject of much discussion during the years since they first appeared.

1. Socrates in Hellenistic philosophy
2. Heraclitus and Stoicism
3. Stoic readings of Homer
4. Dialectic and the Stoic sage
5. Arius Didymus and the exposition of Stoic ethics
6. The local basis of Stoic ethics
7. Greek ethics after Macintyre and the Stoic community of reason
8. Stoic eudaimonism
9. The harmonics of Stoic virtue
10. Soul and body in Stoicism
11. Hierocles on oikeiosis and self-perception
12. Representation and the self in Stoicism
